John Hoffman -
Julius was my great uncle. There was a 'rift' with that part of the family, so I only met him once either just before or early in the trial. I was in high school. I specifically remember him referring to Abbie as "Cousin Abbie" several times during that conversation.
Subject: my heroes
Abbie Hoffman was truly one of the heroes of my youth, along with Bobby Seale, and the Berrigan brothers. REVOLUTION!
